KC Good Citizen Puppy, Bronze and Silver awards.
My daughter Rebecca's funny card about Matilda. All her own work -card and ratings!
Matilda is seldom seen without her brother -she is very close to both him and their mother Ripley.
Matilda was the result of an accidental mating between Dandy and Ripley -
the entire story can be read on the pages about the Maligolds.
There will of course be no more accidents and Matilda is neutered.
Matilda has a Golden Retriever body, but a Malinois like head.
She's very shy and very loving. Originally, only Arnie was meant to stay with us, but the home
for Matilda fell through. The next few people that expressed an interest in her all
turned out to be unsuitable so were turned down, and at 12 weeks of age we
decided that Matilda was to stay with us.
She went to training classes and got as far as her KC Good Citizen Silver award,
but as she never enjoyed training we stopped taking her after she had passed her Silver.
In May 2008 she beame a canine bood donor.
